It has always been a practice at the Information Technology School – ITS to conduct anonymous surveys on the quality of its teaching. These surveys let the students express their opinions on the teaching, give suggestions and make commendations, and most importantly – each of their comments is analyzed and helps in the advancement of the teaching. The analysis of the results of the winter semester 2020/2021 survey has shown that the Learning Support Platform, i.e. the Live stream lectures and the Video Archive, received the largest number of positive comments from the students.
Online platform as support for better learning results
The Learning Support Platform has been used as an extra resource at ITS for years; in the global pandemic – it proved to be a huge advantage. Thanks to this platform, the students can attend the lessons online via live stream, and each lecture remains in the Video Archive and can be seen again at any time. Another advantage is that ITS students can access the Learning Support Platform using the app no matter where they are.
Students’ praise underlines advantages of Live Stream and Video Archive
The students emphasized the platform’s simplicity of use and the option of accessing lectures through Live stream and Video Archive as great advantages of studying at ITS. Below are some of the students’ anonymous comments containing praise for the Live stream and the platform in general.
“ITS really provides excellent materials, along with a platform for learning and other study-related activities. I am especially pleased with the Live stream archive, as other commitments sometimes prevent me from following the lessons as they unfold live – it allows me to access them at a later time.”
“I am extra thrilled by the option of learning from home (recorded lectures) at any moment, at any time of day.”
“The Leave stream option and the Video Archive of lecture recordings are a big advantage.”
“I am pleased with the fact that I can access all lectures online, so I can study from home, because otherwise I wouldn’t be able to attend any lessons because of my work. ITS provides a wide range of learning, comprehensive databases and a wealth of information on different subjects, which is a HUGE plus!”
“I also like the online lessons, which I watch quite often, because work commitments sometimes prevent me from attending.”
“I am happy with the online teaching and the lecture archive; you can watch as if you were there in person at any time.”

“Considering the current global epidemiological situation, it’s an excellent thing that we have all lectures recorded on video.”
“I have been thrilled primarily by the teachers’ dedication, the option of watching the lessons at any time, and precise materials from lectures and exercises.”
“Excellent organization of the students’ portal; I am pleased that I have the option of following the lectures online live, as well as the option of viewing them at a later time.”
“I have a job, but the Video Archive allows me to keep up with the lessons I sometimes cannot attend live.”
“I like the fact that, although I sometimes cannot make it to class, I can view the lectures at home and keep up with everything, without falling behind with the courses.”
“I am pleased with online teaching at ITS; the answers to all questions are very swift, and the entire portal for students is quite user-friendly.”

ITS strives for maximum customization of the teaching and follows the latest trends in education; our students’ comments are another confirmation of the quality of education adjusted to the 21st century.
